Review: Me 2 Japanese Sizzling Restaurant

Me 2 Japanese Sizzling Restaurant Edmonton

So often, posts I see on social media end up influencing where I eat in Edmonton.

That’s what led Mike and I to Me 2 Japanese Sizzling Restaurant (9314 34 Avenue) last week.

I had been seeing photos and video on Instagram showing these sizzling dishes of rice and meat that looked so delicious (and fun – what with the sizzle and all!) that when we were planning a dinner with our friends Brittney and Bin, I really pushed to go to Me 2.

Me 2 Japanese Sizzling Restaurant is located in a strip mall with lots of other great ethnic restaurants. 

Me 2 specializes in teppanyaki, a style of food that’s served on a hot steel plate. Most teppanyaki experiences I was familiar with before Me 2 were typically the style of a Japanese Village, where there’s a teppanyaki chef cooking your meat, fish, and vegetables on a longer hot, iron plate in front of you so it’s like a dinner and a show. 

The Teppan grill style at Me 2 is still like a show – just without that individual chef. The ‘show’ at Me 2 (which is reflected in its name) is the ‘sizzling’ that occurs when you pour sauce over your dish.

Inside Me 2 Japanese Sizzling Restaurant!

“Sizzle it your way” – by choosing your preferred toppings (from beef to duck, shrimp to steak or salmon) then choosing your sauce (Osaka Barbecue, House Special Black Pepper, Japanese Curry or Herb Cream). 

Your meat is served with rice or Japanese-style spaghetti (which I totally want to try!) and vegetables on a hot plate that stays hot at 80C for up to 20 minutes. 

The sauce is served separately, so you can pour it over your dish and get that cool sizzling effect!

Most of the sizzling plates range from $12 to $16 depending on your protein. There are daily specials where some proteins will be cheaper than any others (like Tuesday the duck is on special and Thursday beef is on special), and if you order during lunch (before 4:30 p.m.) then you also get a small appetizer, miso soup and dessert with your sizzling plate, which is really great value! 

You can also add additional toppings to any of the sizzling plates like eggs, cheese or mushrooms ($1.50 each) or fried garlic, corn and scallions ($0.75 each).

Yes please we’d like to add an egg!

We all really enjoyed our sizzling dishes! 

The presentation is awesome and once you mix everything together – meats, rice, vegetables, and sauce, I thought it tasted really good (and on that very cold day – totally warmed us up!) 

I thought my duck plate was especially flavourful with the House Special Black Pepper sauce.

Mike and Brittney both got the Osaka Barbecue sauce which was pre-mixed into the dish and didn’t sizzle (though Brittney had come for lunch a different time and the Osaka Barbecue did come as a sizzling side sauce, so just be sure to ask when you order!) 

They also hide margarine inside the rice or spaghetti so when that breaks out it adds some richness to the meal too.

Takoyaki at Me 2 Japanese Sizzling Restaurant.

While the sizzling hot plates are Me 2 Japanese Sizzling Restaurant’s specialties, they do offer other dishes, including single-serve Japanese hot pots and a variety of appetizers including takoyaki and tofu (Bin’s orders) and gyoza (Mike’s orders).

We also tried their spicy chicken wings with fries. Good wings – nothing special about the fries.

We had a great dinner at Me 2 Japanese Sizzling Restaurant! 

Our server was super attentive, the food came out quite quickly (and hot-sizzling!),  it’s a really cool concept with great presentation and flavourful food. The prices are good for the portions you get.

I’d definitely like to try some of the other sauces and proteins on my return visits! 

So have you been to Me 2 Japanese Sizzling Restaurant? 

What did you think?!

  • This week we celebrated my mom & dad's birthdays with a feast at @chaforteapalace! πŸŽ‰ (Their birthdays are 4 days from each other). Dad doesn't like birthdays though so when we said "Happy birthday!" he replied with "You mean Unhappy Birthday. πŸ‘¨πŸ»" lol. Sure dad. πŸ˜‚

  • I don't know if anyone has noticed but I've been alternating food / people / food / people posts for over a month now and it's taken quite a bit of dedication to the grid but I'm doing it. It's fun too lol.

  • Got to try the @fairmontmac's new "Beast Board" today with @letsomnom and oh my gah is it a delicious feast. 🀀 For $99, this board feeds two people and includes your choice of 3 proteins (and chef's choice of vegetables / sides). πŸ™ŒπŸ» Not sure what to rave about first.. delicious beets, risotto and whipped potatoes. Even better duck, lamb, and salmon. Excellent pea purΓ©e. This is officially on the dinner menu as of Oct. 12 but you can order it off menu until then (just ask your server!) Don't forget the Fairmont also has a harvest farm to table dinner with @myprairiegardens next Friday Oct. 13! Check their page for more details @fairmontmac. And Happy Long Weekend Friday!!! 😍
